Women's Issues Committee

The Women’s Issues Committee of DL21C (WIC) explores issues that impact women, their families, their communities, and the world at large through a wide range of opportunities to inform and mobilize, including forums with leading community and national voices, advocacy opportunities on legislative issues, and informal discussions. In discussions of key themes, WIC raises and responds to questions – often multi-layered – about women’s lives today.

Please join us in our efforts to raise awareness of and energize debate about issues that impact us all, regardless of gender, and to encourage participation in improving and changing communities and lives.
